Former Congress MP Sanjay Sinh and his wife Ameeta Sinh on Wednesday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in presence of working party president JP Nadda.

They both resigned from the party on Tuesday. Sinh also resigned from the Rajya Sabha taking a dig at the party, saying Congress is still living in the past.

"There is a complete lack of communication in Congress party and the leadership is completely missing. Unfortunately, Congress is living in its past and is unaware of the future. Today, the country is with PM Modi & if the country is with him, I'm with him. I will join BJP tomorrow. I have resigned from the party, as well as my membership of Rajya Sabha," he said on Tuesday.

Sanjay Singh, who had earlier served in Janata Dal, was fielded by Congress against BJP heavyweight Maneka Gandhi in the recent Lok Sabha elections. He finished in the third position garnering only about 41,000 votes.
